Hi in addition to all other problemd going on with fish dying due to parasites i also have a lot of white foam floating on pond. Ive tried treatments with approved chemicals which disperses it only for it to reapear shortly afterwords. I have pond filter pump and another pump in my 6000 litre pond. Im told too much protein may be the cause. Anyone any ideas
Thanks. The parasites are those only seen under microscope. I cant remember the name. I have given larger Koi baths in manganate as well as water change and parasite treatment of pond. I have now added Fluke M in precise dosage to pond. If the fish continue to die i intend complete water change and remove fish that are left and humanely kill them. Thereafter start from scratch i have 5 larger koi left one 12” and four 8”. I also have approx 10 other small ghost koi and shubunkins. I have switched off UV lamp in filter for next 7days to allow Fluke M to do its work. I have spent fortune on various chemicals etc its very frustrating. The tests carried out most recently on the water quality gives readings suggesting its fine. Which i conclude means i still have parasites present.
New member New fish keeper. I have 6000 litre raised pond with Some Koi large and small and gold fush shubunkins. I have had pond 1 year. The fish are dying. I have done water change water test which showed amonia levels. Added chemicals to sort that. Other tests show water is fine. Parasites are found on the dead fish and again i have treated pond with various parasite treatments. Fish stabalised for a week but once again they are dying. I have a pump and a fountain filter system and lots of plants. Plants are healthy. Any advice appreciated
